Living in the post apocalypse can be surprisingly comfortable. This reclaimed gas station is home to a small group of survivors who are just making day-to-day. This Lego creation called “Gas Station” has been built by hellboy.lego. Built as an entry into the Vignweek 2020 challenge. This post apocalyptic Gas Station features a small rural style station that has been turned into an outpost/watchtower. It welcomes nobody, with its multitude of Never Stop signs (from the Lego Move 2 sets) mixed in with a bunch of Nuclear Fallout signs. Everything here is Lego, no custom pieces. The soda vending machine, the old classic car, and the EAT sign are all great details that bring a lot of personality to the build. There is even a cute rubber ducky hiding out! Did the survivors get the RV and car up on the roof, or did the nuclear explosion?
Mad Max: Fury Road had a lot of iconic scenes and characters, but the most memorable is the Doof Wagon. A massive truck completely covered in speakers and sub-woofers. A crew of drummers in the back keep the beat going but the star of the show is the Doof Warrior, also known as Coma. A bungie-jumping flaming guitar player leading the armada in battle. This Lego Doof Wagon is the work of tfcrafter1. They used a bunch of Lego 1×1 rounds and 2×2 dishes to create the wall of sound. One of the best details is the bungie cord system, built here with that weird Lego rope with Minifigure grips. The whole truck has been recreated, and even includes a whole set of drummers in the back. As for Coma, the Lego Minifigure skeleton head is a perfect match to the character from the film.
Welcome to Reno, the biggest little city in the world. In the post apocalypse a pair of survivors have found refuge in Nevada. Their current shelter is a ruined airplane that they found in the high desert. This Lego vignette is called “The Gate Of Nevada: 2075” and is created by Mr.MOCsProductions. Built as an entry into the Vignweek 2020 challenge. The specifice theme for this entry is: post apocalyptic. The crashed biplane is a great build. It is emerging from the sandy soil. The plane has a lot of detail especially in the wings. The support structure is a complicated system of bars and clips; the end result looks great. There are also a few rubber bands being used to look like some minor repairs have been done. The two Minifigures look appropriatly end-of-the-worldish. They both come equipped with custom guns. The flags hanging from the telephone pole look great, which is helped by a few custom printed flags. The biggest feature of the vignette is the Reno sign. It has an appropriatly retro look to it, created by using some of the new Lego Dots bricks. Hopefully the nuclear fallout has passed, otherwise the future is going to get a lot harder for these two.
I’ve been playing a lot of the Fallout Shelter video game, or I should say struggling to survive the post-apocalyptic future. With news of the Fallout 4 coming soon there is a surge of interest in related stuff. Even Lego MOCs are being revealed everyday. Matt De Lanoy has created his own scene, titled “The Vaults were never meant to save anyone.” This MOC is part of the Iron Builder challenge, this time it was Metallic Silver Barbell. Can you find them?
